Day one consists of 2-3 hours of classroom presentation covering different types of optics, trajectory, bullet coefficient, marksmanship fundamentals, safety rules, range estimation, reading wind values, and range commands between a shooter and spotter. On day two students will have the knowledge necessary for engaging targets out to 500 yards.
